** A ''lot'' of Batman villains fit this trope. Even SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is about half this, with the other half being AxCrazy OmnicidalManiac .

** "Musical sensation" and political advisor Tinsel might very well be the mistres of this trope. One scene has her walking through a very large room, with several bickering politicians a little to the side of her path. She detours ''right into the center of the crowd'', only to lament that she's "busy", and walks off. And considering her usual wardrobe choices, [[FetishFuel the latter word in this phrase is decidedly appropriate.]]

* Fred Christ of ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' will do absolutely ''anything'' to keep from being ignored. He continuously champions various social causes not out of belief, but because if he's their leader, it gets him media notice. Ultimately, however, [[WhatYouAreInTheDark he dies fighting for a cause he actually believes in, even though nobody can see it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/AstroCity,'' Crackerjack is the pre-eminent example of this trope. He shamelessly boasts about his crimefighting skills, hogs the spotlight without regard to the feelings of his comrades, and never met a camera he didn't like. While he is a fantastic physical specimen and BadassNormal, his grandiosity is too much for ''any'' amount of skill to back up.

* Subverted in ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInTheEightGrade''. Linda Lee -aka Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}- accidentally breaks her own desk, and her school's Principal accuses her from destroying it intentionally because she demands everyone's attention. He also ignores her when she tries to explain it was an accident.
-->'''Principal Pickelmeyer:''' In the future, perhaps you could choose a less destructive manner to beg for attention from your classmates?
